How To Watermark Photos

Watermarks are a logo, stamp, signature, or other message superimposed on your image with enough transparency to allow a viewer to observe the majority of the image. By watermarking your pictures you discourage creative material theft while still allowing individuals to view them. Plus, if you use a logo or other marketing device, it offers an excellent way to promote your work. Best of all, they're easy to apply in your image processing software.

1. Install PaintShop Pro

To install PaintShop Pro photo editing software on your PC, download and run the installation file above. Continue following on-screen instructions to complete the setup process.

2. Choose Visible Watermark

Choose Image > Watermarking > Visible Watermark. The Visible Watermark dialog box appears.

3. Select the watermark graphic

In the Watermark Source group box, click the Browse button. Use the Open dialog box to navigate to the folder containing the graphic you want to use for the watermark. The graphic appears in the preview area of the Watermark Source group box.

4. Decide a placement option

In the Placement group box, choose a placement option:

  • Tile — places the graphic in rows and columns that cover the image
  • Center — places the graphic in the center of the image
  • Corner — lets you choose the image corner in which the graphic is placed

5. Adjust the appearance

In the Style group box, adjust the overall appearance of the graphic:

  • Size — lets you adjust the size of the graphic
  • Opacity — lets you adjust the graphics opacity. Increasing the Opacity setting allows more of the underlying image to be seen through the graphic.
  • Emboss — applies a raised appearance to the graphic

Click OK.
